The perfect camp kitchen

When you’re cooking on the road, other than your cooker, the most important bit of kit you carry is your camp kitchen. There are lots of options out there – from the home-away-from-home sets right down to nothing more than a sharp knife and a spoon. I carry a commercial Sea to Summit kitchen set … Continue reading »

Breakfast Mess

This is a very simple breakfast – it looks a mess – and frankly it is, but it’s full of slow-release energy and sets you up for the day. It’s also worth pointing out that I rather made a hash of this recipe. It should have been an omelette with a little sausage, bacon and … Continue reading »
